Question about 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD
The linkage probably popped off, lets hope its at the handle end, remove the 2 bolts holding handle in place, it should allow you enough movement to check if both linkage rods are still connected, by the cheap little plastic clips.
if the one side is disconnected reach it with either needle nose pliers or a piece of wire w/loop. once open
u can remove offending latch until new clip is secured.
if that is not the reason you will need to try to pry the latch in if you lean into the tailgate it will take a bit of pressure off. try a hacksaw blade, or a piece of mild steel that u can bend to use.
good luck and i hope this helps
